Eridu B&B is situated in Ellera (a small area inside Fiesole municipality) which in the Florentine dialect means “ivy” – an homage to this wild plant so common in the Tuscan countryside.
Ellera is a small village on the Via Aretina (the road to Arezzo) within the location of Fiesole.
It is roughly equidistant (7.5 km) from both Florence and Fiesole and very well connected to Florence downtown by train, bus or car.
In one part of the village – in the part where the Eridu B&B is located, overlooking the famous Arno river – we find a small waterfall which powered the Ellera flour mill, one of the very few that have been restored and are fully functioning.
Guided visits to the mill can be booked by phoning Marco Castaldi (055 6593441)
